When ISPs or governments block access to the Tor network, our users rely on bridges to connect.

With BridgeDB, we tackle the problem of how to get bridges to censored users while making it difficult for censors to get all bridges. A lot has changed since our last blog post, which introduced BridgeDB version 0.7.1.

During the month of December, we're highlighting other organizations and projects that rely on Tor, build on Tor, or are accomplishing their missions better because Tor exists.
